RE:[IP] Long acting insulin that starts with L works very evenly

Another correction:
While Lantus may have an even basal delivery, it could be
too even for people who need twice as much basal for their
dawn phenomenon, and it could be too much basal for people
who have lowered basal needs at some other time frame during
the day. YMMV!

>>Lantus insulin is 24 hour long ACTING and is just about
like using the pump for the basal effect.  The short acting
Humalog shots are used for meals like with the pump.  The
activity of
Lantus is very even as a Basel and meal times can be moved
around, or missed,
much easier than when using NPH.  <<
